In general, this is quite true. Stairs that have turns in them and unnecessary landings as the stairs rise do result in a lot of wasted space below and behind the stairs that you can do nothing with. The exception, however, is the spiral staircase that can look quite elegant, is easy to install, and uses the minimum of space. Detracting from this is the inability for disabled stair-lifts to be fitted - or, at least, I haven't come across one yet. It is also more of a chore to take furniture up and downstairs when the need for moving your furniture becomes apparent - as in moving house.

Instead, install a shelf on the wall behind the bed that can be used for bedtime reading material and an alarm clock. You can't compromise on the size of your bed, but you can try to make it work harder. Underbed boxes or beds with built-in drawers or shelves utilise the redundant area underneath. Flip-up beds also ensure space is put to good use. Remember, too, that low-level beds are less visually dominating than lofty princess-and-the-pea style ones.

Clever solutions: Good storage is key to keeping things uncluttered, and a wall of floor-to-ceiling cupboards will provide lots of space while requiring a relatively small footprint. 'Built-in benches can be crafted to include a surprising amount of hidden storage,' says Guy Morgan Harris. Make the most of hidden space by removing the partition wall between studs to create display storage, building shelving in the eaves, or even by using the void under your floorboards. 'Install a ring-pull latch and make ply boxes to store stuff in,' says Guy.
